4 shot, 1 fatally, across Chicago so far this weekend

Four people were wounded, one fatally, in shootings across Chicago so far this weekend.

Two men were shot, 1 fatally, Friday at a gas station in Austin on the West Side.

Someone fired shots at the men just after 8 p.m. as they sat in a parked vehicle at the station in the 5100 block of West Madison Street, Chicago police said.

One man, 28, was struck several times in the body and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he died, police said. The other man, 27, was in good condition at the same hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office hasn’t released details on the death.


In non-fatal shootings, a man was shot early Saturday in Englewood on the South Side.

The 37-year-old was shot by another man during an argument about 12:20 a.m. in the 5800 block of South May Street, Chicago police said. He suffered a gunshot wound to the left thigh and was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition.

Minutes later, a 28-year-old man was injured in a shooting Saturday in Lawndale on the West Side.

He was waiting outside for a friend about 12:45 a.m. in the 500 block of South California Avenue when a dark-colored sedan pulled up, and someone inside yelled "Give me everything you got," Chicago police said. The man refused and backed away when someone inside the sedan fired several shots and fled.

He suffered one gunshot wound to the left arm and was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in fair condition, police said.

Last weekend, four people were killed and 22 others wounded in shootings across Chicago.
